Infrared Roses (Eyedea)

[Eyedea] Well I guess this is it, I guess it's uh.. time or whatever So I guess I'll start it like this And I'll never again be as happy as I was when I was in the 7th grade Before the guilt of having no goals ate my life away Each day introduced me to somehting that I hadn't experienced yet Traded A's for F's to gain the time to experiment with drugs and sex I'll never forget me and jakes first roses trip together Or the times when we all walked aimlessly through summer weather With nothing better to do I rode to s.a.and tried to steal a pack of squares Man I miss being a kid with no cares Its the excitement of knowing everything you touch is new I just wish I couldv'e stopped to cherish the moment while it lasted but Maybe that's the point, the second your smart enough to recognize freedom Your no longer free You see heaven isn't some place that we go to when we die It's that split second in life where you actually feel alive And until the end of time, we chase the memory of that Hoping the future holds something better than the past So why do I spend my time runnin' away? When the truth is right here in the mirror inside my dying face I can waste my energy tryin to reproduce something that's gone But my childhood is dead, it's time to move on So what do you call a person that's already past his peak? Just keep stack in tha sheep you keep counting when you can't go to sleep Two years out of high school goin on way too deep Tell me again why 7th grade was so brief? Damn... the curiosity that killed shrodingers cat was the only thing that Kept it alive matter of fact When life takes your life away how do you get it back? Like that... like that... REPEAT
